Meeting Information General Information The 232nd ECS Meeting will be held in National Harbor, Maryland, USA from October 1-6, 2017 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. This international conference will bring together scientists, engineers, and researchers from academia, industry, and government laboratories to share results and discuss issues on related topics through a variety of formats, such as oral presentations, poster sessions, panel discussions, tutorial sessions, short courses, and exhibits. The unique blend of electrochemical and solid state science and technology at an ECS Meeting provides an opportunity and forum to learn and exchange information on the latest scientific and technical developments in a variety of interdisciplinary areas. Abstract Submission To give an oral or poster presentation at the 232nd ECS Meeting, you must submit an original meeting abstract for consideration via the ECS website, no later than April 7, 2017. Faxed, e-mailed, and/or late abstracts will not be accepted. Meeting abstracts should explicitly state objectives, new results, and conclusions or significance of the work. Once the submission deadline has passed, the symposium organizers will evaluate all abstracts for content and relevance to the symposium topic, and will schedule all acceptable submissions as either oral or poster presentations. In May 2017, Letters of Acceptance/Invitation will be sent via email to the corresponding author of all accepted abstracts, notifying them of the date, time, and location of their presentation. Regardless of whether you requested a poster or an oral presentation, it is the symposium organizers’ discretion to decide how and when it is scheduled. Paper Presentation Oral presentations must be in English; LCD projectors and laptops will be provided for all oral presentations. Presenting authors MUST bring their presentation on a USB flash drive to be used with the dedicated laptop that will be in each technical session room. Speakers requiring additional equipment must make written request to meetings@electrochem.org at least one month prior to the meeting so that appropriate arrangements may be worked out, subject to availability, and at the expense of the author. Poster presentations must be displayed in English, on a board approximately 3 feet 10 inches high by 3 feet 10 inches wide (1.17 meters high by 1.17 meters wide), corresponding to their abstract number and day of presentation in the final program. Meeting Publications ECS Meeting Abstracts—All meeting abstracts will be published in the ECS Digital Library (www.ecsdl.org), copyrighted by ECS, and all abstracts become the property of ECS upon presentation. ECS Transactions—All full papers and posters presented at ECS meetings are eligible for submission to the online proceedings publication, ECS Transactions (ECST). The degree of review to be given each paper is at the discretion of the symposium organizers. Some symposia will publish an “enhanced” issue of ECST, which will be available for sale at the meeting, through the ECS Digital Library, and through the ECS Online Store. Please see each individual symposium listing in this Call for Papers to determine if there will be an “enhanced” ECST issue. In the case of symposia publishing “enhanced” issues, submission of a full-text manuscript to ECST is mandatory and is required in advance of the meeting. Some symposia will publish a “standard” issue of ECST, for which all authors are encouraged to submit their full-text papers. Please see each individual symposium listing in this Call for Papers to determine if there will be a “standard” ECST issue. Upon completion of the review process, papers from the “standard” issues will be published shortly after their acceptance. Once published, papers will be available for sale through the ECS Digital Library and through the ECS Online Store. Please visit the ECST website (www.ecsdl.org/ECST) for additional information, including overall guidelines, deadlines for author submissions and editor reviews, author and editor instructions, a downloadable manuscript template, and more. ECS Journals–Authors presenting papers at ECS meetings, and submitting to ECST, are also encouraged to submit to the Society’s technical journals: the Journal of The Electrochemical Society, and ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology. Although there is no hard deadline for the submission of these papers, it is considered that six months from the date of the symposium is sufficient time to revise a paper to meet the stricter criteria of the journals. “Instructions to Authors” are available from the ECS website.

7th International

2017 HUMAN SUSTAINABILITY – ENERGY, WATER, FOOD, AND HEALTH The ECS Electrochemical Energy Summit (E2S) brings together policy makers and researchers as a way of educating attendees about the critical issues of energy needs and the pivotal research in electrochemical energy that will impact our planet’s sustainability. The Summit is designed to facilitate interactions and foster an exchange between leading policy makers, researchers and energy experts. The 7th International ECS Electrochemical Energy Summit take place on October 2-4 and will focus around Human Sustainability – Energy, Water, Food, and Health. The program will include three distinct symposia, each focusing on these important topics: Energy-Water Nexus; The Brain and Electrochemistry; and Sensors for Food Safety, Quality, and Security.

Z03

Energy-Water Nexus All Divisions, Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Subcommittee

The development of clean, affordable energy and the availability of safe and affordable clean water are two of society’s greatest challenges. The need for clean water for energy generation and the need for energy to produce clean water compound the challenges. With respect to this energy-water nexus, basic sustenance are at risk in major regions of the human population. There is a direct correlation between energy use, productivity and the standard of living. If the world population is to stabilize, the standard of living in developing nations must raise, which, in turn, implies that energy use must also rise. The cost of energy is a significant fraction of the total cost of the gross domestic product (GDP) an increase in the cost of energy correspondingly leads to a reduction in other GDP factors and, therefore, a loss in standard of living. This effect is particularly harmful in developing nations that already have an undesirably low GDP. However, energy production and use also directly impacts the environment and the availability of safe and affordable water. Thermoelectric power generation alone consumes approximately 40% of the freshwater withdrawal in the United States. Similarly, the US water infrastructure consumes 13-18% of total municipal electricity usage; that portion is projected to increase with increasing water scarcity, population growth, and corresponding contamination of water resources. In addition, cleaner energy alternatives (e.g., biofuels) will significantly increase water demands thus adversely affecting food supplies. Future water supplies will rely increasingly on nontraditional sources and water reuse (e.g., impaired water, brackish water and desalinated sea water), the treatment of which will demand significantly more energy and increased attention to public assurance of safety. As currently managed, domestic wastes and wastewaters require high energy expenditures for treatment and disposal. Moreover, increased stresses on fresh water tend to lead to greater water pollution, creating an unsustainable feedback loop. Therefore, the increasing global demands for both energy and water pose formidable challenges to these interconnected infrastructure systems. Furthermore, global utilization of energy has been demonstrated to be responsible for the majority of anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and, thereby, the changing climate, adversely affecting global environment. Moreover, climate change is a critical factor driving enhanced weather extremes, resulting in less water availability in arid regions that can least afford it. It has been predicted that this energywater-climate negative trifecta will have a severe impact on water and food availability for most of Africa and central Asia–almost half the world’s population—by 2025. This, combined with the fact that 2.6 billion people lack access to safe and effective forms of sanitation; more children die each year from diarrhea than AIDS and malaria combined; should make energy efficient solutions to safe and effective sanitation a global priority. The symposia will start with a society-wide plenary session to both describe the critical nature of this global societal issue and introduce major governmental and other programs focused on funding solutions 4

to address it. This will then be followed by focused symposia on the role of electrochemistry in addressing clean energy and global water and sanitation needs in the context of the energy-water nexus. Papers are requested on all aspects of the energy-water nexus with particular emphasis on technologies that cogenerate energy and clean water or provide low-energy solutions to water treatment or disinfection, such as microbial fuel cells and photocatalytic water purification; scaling of technology from micro-sensors to determine water purity to municipal water treatment; and the fundamentals of electrochemistry at the nanobio interface, electrodialysis, and ion exchange membranes.

Z04

The Brain and Electrochemistry All Divisions, Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Subcommittee

A Society-wide Symposium is convened at the juncture of electrochemistry, the brain and the nervous system. Brain disorders that include psychiatric, neurodegenerative and developmental conditions, represent an enormous burden of disease, in terms of economic cost to society of more than $100B. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) it has been estimated that more than 30% of all disease burden is due to brain disorders. This symposium will provide a forum for the discussion of research and developments on the brain, the central (CNS) and the peripheral nervous systems (PNS). How can the central and the peripheral nervous systems be viewed and studied in terms of electrical circuits and electrochemical reactions and methods? Topics include unresolved questions in brain function and neurological dysfunction; CNS and PNS monitoring and different ways to activate the nervous system including electrical neurostimulation, optogenetics, magnetogenetics and other novel approaches; simulation and modeling of neural circuits; electrochemical measurements and methods of neurochemistry; novel neural interfaces materials stability and biocompatibility of implantable devices. The symposium will be opened with a session of invited talks on policy consideration, followed by invited and contributed technical papers.

Z05

Sensors for Food Safety, Quality, and Security Sensor Division, Organic and Biological Electrochemistry Division, Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division, Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Subcommittee

The quality, safety and security of our food is of paramount importance to every man, women and child of the United States. As many as 48 Million Americans become ill annually due to food borne illness. This symposium will provide a forum for the discussion of research and development in the field of sensors for the detection of food borne pathogens, toxic molecules, ingredients, and other substances relevant to food safety. This symposium will be composed of a one

Battery Student Slam 2 Battery Division

This is the second special symposium of this series; the first one was held during the 231st ECS Meeting in New Orleans in May 2017. This special symposium is dedicated to battery students that research and develop the advancement of batteries and contribute to the discovery and optimization of battery materials for Li-ion batteries and beyond Li-ion systems. In this second bi-annual symposium which is called the ‘Battery Student Slam II’, we offer an opportunity for students to present flash oral presentations of their work in a 10 minute time slot. All students enrolled at any valid degree-granting institution may submit an abstract that covers the presentation. Of particular interest are new materials and designs, performance studies, and modeling of all types of batteries, supercapacitors and fuel cells, including aqueous, non-aqueous, polymer electrolytes, solid electrolytes, and flow systems. It would be preferred for students to submit their papers to this symposium instead of other symposia that call-for-papers sponsored by the Batteries and Energy Storage Division. Awards for the top three slam presentations will be given and are judged by the symposium organizers. A “standard” issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium. All authors accepted for presentation are encouraged to submit their full text manuscript for the issue no later than October 22, 2017.

Battery Materials: Beyond Li-Ion

Division, Physical and Analytical A05 Battery Electrochemistry Division While lithium-ion batteries are utilized as a core technology for numerous energy storage applications, there is a ceiling in energy density due to the limited capacity inherent with intercalation electrodes. Research interest in battery chemistries that store energy using non-intercalation chemistries, such as the beyond lithium ion systems lithium-sulfur (Li/S) and lithium-air (Li/air) has remained high with recent developments in electrode formation, catalysts, and specialized electrolytes. Further, multivalent (Mg, Ca, Al) based systems, electrochemically active organic molecules (polymers, oligomers, molecular species), as well as Na-ion systems are gaining momentum as alternatives based on factors that include raw materials cost and the ability to use metal anodes to increase energy density. For this symposium, all subjects on these batteries are solicited. In particular, topics could include the discovery of new active materials and electrolytes, the optimization and improvement of standard materials, and new methods to discover and isolate active materials. Additional areas of interest include new cell designs, electrochemical and cost modeling, physical and electrochemical characterization methods and new concepts. Finally a special focus session on understanding the electrochemical mechanisms associated with these new battery chemistries is anticipated. A “standard” issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium. All authors accepted for presentation are encouraged to submit their full text manuscript for the issue no later than October 22, 2017. All manuscripts will be submitted online, and must be in either MS Word or PDF format.

Devices A06 Storage Battery Division, Energy Technology Division

Energy efficient, high-speed, and smart manufacturing methods are rapidly being developed for the production of advanced energy storage electrodes and full cells, including the integration of 3-D printing and additive manufacturing processes. Novel coating architectures are being designed that include patterned electrodes with 2-D and 3-D features, and electrode processing methodologies are being developed that significantly reduce or eliminate the amount of organic solvent, or completely eliminate the liquid phase altogether. Cell manufacturing methods and associated componentry are being researched that significantly reduce the mass of inactive material (binders, separators, current collectors, etc.). When combined, these technologies reduce both the operating and plant capital expenditures while simultaneously improving cell performance, energy density, and power density. Papers are solicited for introducing: (1) new lower-cost component manufacturing processes; (2) strategies for simplifying cell production; (3) advanced electrode architectures with higher performance; (4) novel inactive cell components and assembly 8

E—Electrochemical/Electroless Deposition

The path from discovery, invention, and scientific understanding to wellengineered products and processes is complex, and involves integration of a wide range of skills and perspectives. This is particularly true in electrochemical engineering, where the development of viable processes in energy, environment, health care, or information technology requires understanding molecular mechanisms, tailoring new materials, and integrating data over a wide range of scales in order to scale-up, design, and develop manufacturing methods to produce reliable devices and products at low cost. A clear understanding and creative application of the fundamentals are essential to successfully address these challenges. The goal of this symposium is to draw together the collective interests of scientists and engineers skilled in moving along the path from ideas to profits. The reduction to routine use of the approaches presented here will define essential engineering methods for emerging electrochemical applications for which increased predictability is of high importance. Of interest are reusable engineering methods that have emerged from diverse applications such as nano-bio-micro-devices, photovoltaic converters, batteries, biomedical devices, etc. Such methods might

Mechanics and Metallurgy of Electrodeposited Thin Films Electrodeposition Division

Today’s applications of electrodeposited films span many areas of our society. These involve decorative applications, coatings for corrosion protection, improved wear and tear, high temperature resistant coatings as well as electrodeposited films with special applications in energy sector, and areas of semiconductor devices, magnetic disk drive manufacturing, and MEMS/NEMS fabrication. Some of the common goals that electrodeposition faces is addressing these diverse and challenging applications are control of the deposit structure, its texture, grain size distribution, stress, grain boundary composition and quality, film fracture toughness and defect density. For further successful application of electrodeposition in many other areas it is crucial that links between fundamental processes such as nucleation, additive adsorption, deposition rate, pH, temperature, anion choice, and resulting mechanical and metallurgical properties of electrodeposited thin films are identified and phenomenologically described. This symposium brings together researchers in different areas of electrodeposition with the intent to discuss the current state of the art in understanding the link between the fundamental processes and resulting properties of electrodeposited films. Contributions are sought but not limited to the papers investigating electrodeposition process leading to better texture and grain size distribution control, stress and fracture control, grain boundary quality and resistivity control, and better magnetic and optical properties. Both, experimental and theoretical papers as well as contribution involving simulations and atomistic calculations are welcomed in an effort to forge a stronger link between the experiential parameters and resulting properties of electrodeposit. The symposium will include invited review, tutorial papers and contributed papers. A “standard” issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium.

Atomic Layer Deposition Applications 13

and Photonics Division, Dielectric G02 Electronics Science and Technology Division

Continued progress in nanotechnology and nanomanufacturing requires precise, conformal coatings of thin film materials. Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) enables the deposition of ultra-thin, highly conformal coatings over complex, 3D topographies with precise control over both thickness and composition. Consequently, ALD has become the technology of choice for a large variety of applications beyond microelectronics. Over the last twelve years, this symposium has earned a leading position among the meetings where ALD is discussed. Call for Papers 14

Thermoelectric and Thermal Interface

3 G04 Materials Electronics and Photonics Division, Energy

Technology Division, High Temperature Materials Division

Today’s electronics are smaller and more powerful than ever, leading to ever increasing thermal challenges. Approximately 90% of the world’s electricity is generated by heat energy, typically operating at 30-40% efficiency, losing roughly 15 terawatts of power in the form of heat to the environment. Heat sinks and liquids can be used to provide cooling. Advances in thermoelectric materials and devices with high Seebeck coefficients and figures of merit offer possible routes for thermal management, but also waste heat harvesting and power generation. Thermal interface materials importantly help to transfer heat from hot spots to the cooling hardware, and advances in both thermoelectric materials and interface materials are required. This symposium will address the most recent developments in thermoelectric and thermal interface materials and strategies for modern devices and applications. Papers on both practical and fundamental issues are solicited on topics related to thermoelectric material growth, analysis, processing, and applications, as well as thermal interface material applications and properties. The symposium will address basic and applied research and development, which will include the following areas of particular interest: (1) advances in bulk and nanoscale growth methods; (2) advances in device processing of thermoelectric and thermal interface materials; (3) power generation and energy harvesting and scavenging; (4) refrigeration and cooling; (5) semiconductor materials, growth, and processing; (6) phonon engineering and transport; (7) in situ and ex situ examination; (8) modeling of nanoscale effects in modern thermoelectric materials; (9) bismuth chalcogenides; (10) inorganic clathrates; (11) group IV and related compounds; (12) oxide and transition metal silicides, properties, and processing; (13) advanced thermoelectric materials; and (14) high ZT materials and devices. An “enhanced” edition of ECS Transactions is planned to be available at the meeting. All authors accepted for presentation are obligated to submit their full text manuscript for the issue no later than July 14, 2017. All manuscripts will be submitted online, and must be in either MS Word or PDF format.

Oxide Memristors High Temperature Materials Division, Dielectric Science and Technology Division, Electronics and Photonics Division

Recently, there has been much interest in resistive switching devices (i.e. memristors) for non-volatile memory applications, bio-inspired logic operations, signal processing, etc. Memristors are a new exciting area which was for many years strongly driven by mostly electronic engineers. However, the electrochemistry and materials architectures require attention as these form the base to engineer the charge transport properties and connect those to the memristive performance metrics of the devices. This symposium is dedicated to understand the defect chemical processes and kinetics, making of memristive materials and device designs and novel in-operando techniques to connect electronic/atomistic to transport relevant changes during memristive operations. Advances on in-operando characterization techniques for resistive switching processes defining spatial, temporal and the energetic extent of switching processes are also of particular interest. The symposium will explore the interdisciplinary nature of memristor research with topics on (but not limited to) memristor theory and modeling, functional materials and devices, bio-inspired computing paradigms, ionic and electronic conduction in memristive devices, non-volatile information storage via ions and electrons. A “standard” issue of ECS Transactions is planned for this symposium. All authors accepted for presentation are encouraged to submit their full text manuscript for the issue no later than October 22, 2017. All manuscripts will be submitted online, and must be in either MS Word or PDF format.

Education in Electrochemistry Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division, Energy Technology Division, Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division

While the lion’s share of research is accomplished by graduate students and post-doctoral fellows, there are a number of institutions that are undergraduate only who are making significant contributions to electrochemistry. These are wonderful opportunities for the students, but certainly present additional challenges to the primary investigator not seen at the more research focused institutions. This symposium calls not just for research methods and papers from an undergraduate dominated setting, but also teaching and curriculum ideas for incorporating electrochemistry into undergraduate programs. We look for this symposium to shed some light on what has been accomplished and some thoughts on how to train the electrochemists of tomorrow. Papers on basic and applied research and teaching in all areas of electrochemistry, electrochemical systems, bioelectrochemistry, and physics related to solid state and electrochemical science and technology are solicited. Keynote lectures will be presented by invited speakers. A undergraduate poster session is also planned. Student participation is highly encouraged, and it is anticipated that some funds will be available for student and young scientist support. An “enhanced” edition of ECS Transactions is planned to be available at the meeting. All authors accepted for presentation are obligated to submit their full text manuscript for the issue no later than July 14, 2017.

M—Sensors Sensors, Actuators and Microsystems

Session M01 General Sensor Division

This symposium will address all aspects of chemical and biological sensors, actuators and microsystems. Chemical and biological sensors find extensive application in environmental monitoring, health care, food security and industrial quality assurance, safety and process control. Sensors and actuators are often integrated into “smart” microsystems: microfabricated sensors and/or actuators combined with electronics which enable, for example, signal conditioning and data processing. The need for multifunctional, smart technologies, which depend on sensors, actuators and electronics, is expected to increase in coming years as further demands and expectations are placed on systems and devices. This general session welcomes papers on all aspects of chemical and biological sensors, actuators and microsystems not covered in other sessions. This symposium intends to bring together a range of interdisciplinary topics and covers all materials aspects of sensors, actuators and microsystems. Primary emphasis will be placed upon applied aspects of the materials, synthesis, evaluation and development strategies of novel materials/

Chemical sensor research and development is an active pursuit in academics and industry worldwide. Chemical and physical sensing is becoming increasingly important in such diverse areas as transportation security, caring for and preserving the independence of an aging population, the emerging use of point of care diagnostic devices, wearable sensors for health and fitness, environmental monitoring, personal exposure monitoring and the problems of clean air and water. Trends in wearables and the Internet of Things (IoT) suggest an ever-growing role for chemical and physical sensors in our daily lives. There is also a growing trend toward ubiquitous sensor deployment, enabled by a high degree of internet connectivity (IoT). The “smart cities” movement is one example of this. Many exciting and potentially enabling developments with direct application to sensing and detection have been reported including advances in nanomaterials and nanotechnology, MEMS devices, plasmonics, printed electronics and new biorecognition strategies. Despite the on-going basic scientific progress, translation into practical commercial products remains a challenge with its own set of issues that are quite distinct from the science and technology. A number of technical, business and sociological factors come into play in commercialization that are not often discussed in technical forums, but are critical components for overall success with new products for society. The goal of this symposium is to bring together sensor scientists and engineers from industry, academia and government as well as market analysts,
